Food security is among the most basic of human needs, but contemporary issues prevent equitable access to food. Economic inequality and structural racism, corporate agricultural practices, food waste, climate change, and domestic and geopolitics are among the many factors that contribute to disparity in food resources around the globe. Food Justice: Growing a Healthier Community through Art will critically explore complex human issues that can shape and influence positive change in food security. Art’s transformative potential will enable viewers to understand food insecurity in meaningful ways and be inspired towards change.
